Boston University Concept

Recommended Posts

I wanted to try my hand at the Boston University Terriers logo. Their current mascot is a black and white dog, but their colors are red and white. Despite the dog's colors, I wanted to get as much red in there as possible.

Boston Terriers are little cute dogs so I didn't want to over-emphasize the body, or add some menacing pose. Just would look silly. If I did a full body pose, I'd keep it small in comparison to the word mark, perhaps.

The 1940s logo WON'T be part of the logo set, but I made that while fiddling around and kinda liked it regardless. Kinda old school.

Reminds me of a fantasy basektball logo on this board a few months ago -

Brooklyn (something)?

Anyway - great logo!!

HA! That concept was also Tom's.

The Brooklyn Aces featuring a boxer (dog) with pilot goggles. One of my abso-favs that I am lucky enough to have a T-shirt of.

Nice man. I'll join the club and say I dig the 40's one too.

Thanks for the comments. I'm not going to say the Aces is nothing like the Terriers. It has smooshed-face dog w/ pointy ears + team name underneath + my style. I do think the feel of the two is different, though, and they are very dissimilar side by side. The Aces has a deliberate retrologo, aerial feel, and this one is more current in style. My motivation was selfish. I like those dogs.

I do think this Boston U. look could more or less work for them. It's unified and unique. I looked at the school's merch and it was all over the place. 90% of it had no dog at all, the rest was blocky type with "Boston" on it. Zzzzzz.

Funny that people like the 1940s logo, too. I don't see any school in 2005 saying "Yes! Let's do that!" There may be folks with a real modern style who could potentially spruce it up and give it a current feel, while retaining it's composition. Give that rough to Rickabaugh to tweak, and it's sold. I may revisit its potential later.

Guinness, does my logo need bigger eyes, or leave the size as is?

Count me in on the side of the 1940s-style logo. It seems like every school has given up and is going with Berthold City font in italics, or a slight modification of it (UMass, DePaul, Tennessee, just to name a few). The pennant look is unique today and would fit a school like BU very well.

Alright. Sounds like most of y'all are liking the 1940s version of this logo set. I couldn't leave it looking so ...old, so I updated the fonts in the banner. Here's the original logo and the updated retro set for comparison. Are y'all really thinking that a school in 2005 would want a ribbon in their design? I kept the wordmark because it made sense.

Perhaps the Brooklyn Bulldogs?

Nice work, rtrich. I'd focus a little more on the head, and less on the body. Also, personally, I like the pennant-less design.
